TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Humane Society of Southern Arizona will not accept any cats through September 22 as the shelter has reached its full capacity.

Officials say these measures need to be taken so they may provide ample care to every pet in the shelter.

"It's a heartbreaking thing to see. There are cats and litters of kittens coming in daily," HSSA Public Relations Lead Samantha Esquivel said in a news release. "It's imperative we care for our existing cat population until each feline is happily adopted. We are doing the best we can."

HSSA officials ask cat owners who want to relinquish their pets to keep them until more space becomes available in the shelter, or call the HSSA for other alternatives.

If all options have been exhausted, the shelter recommends contacting the Pima Animal Care Center at (520) 243-5900.

The HSSA is running a special through the end of September at its main shelter and all offsite locations. All adult cats are $10 and kittens are $75, or two for $100.

Select dogs can be adopted for $25, plus $16 licensing fees through September 22.
